Strategies for Successful Fitness Trainers

Strategies for Successful Fitness TrainersTo be a success as a fitness trainer, there are some specific strategies that can help you. That’s especially true if you are not only a trainer but own the business. Here are the top five strategies most likely to make you successful, according to American Fitness Professionals and Associates:

  1. Recognize that fitness is an industry and a career.
  2. Set goals and work on them daily.
  3. Manage your time effectively.
  4. Prioritize education by putting it near the top of the list.
  5. Have a diet philosophy; fitness is about more than just exercise.

These strategies essentially fall into three categories: goal setting, teaching/learning and business growth.

Goal Setting

If you want to take a journey, it’s a good idea to know where you’re going. To be a business success, you must first define what success means for you and then develop some specific strategies to achieve that success. You should also build in some measurable targets, so you know when you’ve arrived at the goal. Don’t forget to budget for these goals; there’s nothing worse than a missed opportunity because you didn’t have a financial reserve.


To teach, you must first learn. That can mean anything from taking a class on a new exercise technique to researching how a particular supplement might help increase muscle mass or overall health. A good place to start with supplements is with InterHealth. We offer a number of useful supplements and provide the research so you can learn about what you are recommending. Once you have the knowledge, you must be able to teach it – work on your communication skills, as these are critical in teaching new techniques and concepts to your clients and staff. It also means learning about the business of business. Even if you only have a few employees, you’ll need to know about human resource and tax issues, not to mention worker’s compensation and payroll law.

Business Growth

Very few businesses are designed along a grow-to-here-and-then-stop model. Growth is usually a sign that you’re doing something right. Planned growth allows you to survey the territory, consider how best to expand, allocate resources wisely and manage the changes inherent in growing your business. You should also make time for professional networking – it provides you with support and can help you find a mentor or connect with potential new employees or clients. Professional networks are also a good source of new ideas and can help keep you abreast of developments in the field.
These strategies can help you build your business. Keep practicing them, and they’ll help you to the top of your profession. Then you can be the expert who offers a hand up to the newcomers.
